50% of Surveyed Parents Believe Flu Vaccine Causes Flu

Scientists may have found the key ingredient for a universal flu vaccine and it comes from llamas

"The awareness campaigns regarding flu vaccination were necessary and the department concerned must initiate efforts to educate citizens about consequences of influenza virus on their health, preventive measure they can adopt and of course the remedies and proper medications", he said. Dr. Box said that because infants under 6 months can't be vaccinated, it's important that anyone in a household where a young baby lives or visits get a flu shot to protect the child.

The province wants seniors living in long-term care facilities to take advantage of a special high-dose version of the season flu vaccine. Almost 400 people died in North Carolina during the last flu season.

The American Academy of Family Physicians states that every year about 130,000 people go to a hospital with the flu and 20,000 people die from it. But they increase when temperatures drop and the virus becomes more active.

As many as 35 million flu cases are expected this year, starting in October and continuing into May, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The researchers gave the llamas flu vaccines and then gathered antibodies from their blood, including some that were effective against more than one strain.Their choice of llamas was very practical.


This is the second year the high-dose version has been available in Manitoba, the province said, and it showed promising results, including fewer all-cause deaths in immunized senior residents compared to a similar flu season experienced in 2014-15. Healthcare workers also are urged to get a flu vaccine to reduce their risk of transmitting illness to their patients. And this is one of them."Birds host a vast variety of flu strains, which are constantly mutating and mixing genes into new combinations". Traditionally it protects against 3 types of influenza: Influenza A, (H1N1), influenza A (H3N2) and influenza B.

Myth: Getting the flu is not that serious.

Yes, unfortunately because sometimes you may be exposed to a flu virus shortly before getting vaccinated, or because you may be exposed to a type of flux that is not included in the seasonal flu vaccine. In total, 616 people were hospitalized due to the flu in Spokane County with 41 deaths attributed to flu-related complications.
